Happy Birthday to Me

I'm 33 years old now!

Here are the books I received:
  • Pat Barker: Liza's England (from my parents)

  • Aimee Bender: Willful Creatures (from my parents)

  • Octavia Butler: Kindred (from my brother)

  • Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni: Leaving Yuba City (Poems) (from my parents)

  • Tammy L. Hopkins and Henry Delamere: Images of America: Marysville (from my parents)

  • Joyce Burkhalter Flueckiger: Gender and Genre in the Folklore of Middle India (from Susan)

  • Aldous Huxley: Brave New World & Brave New World Revisited (from my parents)

  • Larissa Lai: When Fox Is a Thousand (from my parents)

  • Bonnie Marranca (editor): American Garden Writing: An Anthology (from Susan)

  • Harold Norse: Memoirs of a Bastard Angel (from Susan)

  • Redbud Chapter, California Native Plant Society: Wildflowers of Nevada and Placer Counties, California (from my parents)

  • Salman Rushdie: The Jaguar Smile (from my parents)

  • Sappho: The Poetry of Sappho (from Susan)
I also received two CDs from my parents (Depeche Mode's Sounds of the Universe and the Pet Shop Boys' Yes), plant seeds from my parents (Clarkia unguiculata, an unspecified thyme, and a random calendula that I didn't ask for), and a tiny hummingbird feeder from Susan. Susan says I will be receiving additional presents from her on future days, including a compost bin and maybe some other stuff she won't specify because she's not sure yet whether she'll be able to obtain it.

And now my birthday is almost over. Five more minutes!
